IRIS - Yas Island welcomes their new resident DJ Bruce Hill to their fabulous venue on the Yas Marina. Following in the footsteps on some fantastic performances in 2015, Bruce brings his unique style of House to Abu Dhabi.
Bruce welcome to Abu Dhabi, what are your first impressions of the city?
I like it! It's my 4th season in the UAE and although I spend more time in Dubai, it's always a pleasure to come here. Like a small holiday.
What first got you into DJing?
House music! I'm from Holland and there has been a big scene there since the early 90's. I got my first turntables and mixer when I was 13 years old, so that's 20 years ago. I'm getting old….
As a long term Ibiza resident for what has been your most memorable gig?
There has been multiple gigs that were great, but two of the them were with the closing parties and both back 2 backs', one with one of my heroes, Kerri Chandler and the other one with my friend and colleague Vidal Rodriguez.
IRIS have had some great DJs perform over the last 12 months, what can we expect from your performances?
I play what I like with an eye on the crowd of course. It's just great to make people dance to music that you love.
Sum up your musical style in the length of a tweet.
If you could share the stage/decks with one artist who would it be?
I already did last summer with Eats Everything. I love his sound!
Are there any memorable facts / stories we should know about Bruce Hill?
Too many stories, I could write a book about all the stunts I pulled….
And finally, when can we here you play?
I'm gonna be the resident of the newest hotspot in Dubai called Indie, which I am very excited about! Can't wait for this place to open!!! And you can catch me at Iris Yas Island multiple times a month, including during the epic Iris Sundown event which happens once a month. Next one is scheduled for Friday, January 29th and I will be opening for Valentin Huedo, an Ibiza resident and a great DJ who will, I am sure, greatly appeal to the Abu Dhabi audience!
